Yup, 3:39. A fair bit off from my goal. But, another BQ, which I know is a bit of a golden ticket. As much as I hate the Boston Marathon (so far), I have qualified from 2007 through 2012 and I am proud of that.
I loved Eugene. Duck and family were SO awesome.
But I couldn't execute. And I don't know why.
Which p!sses me off. There was no big blow up. No wall. I simply couldn't hold my pace. Even though I felt so GREAT for the first 15 or so.
After returning from Eugene, I initially thought I might rebound and do something in 3-4 weeks given how strong my training season was. But now I know I need to let it go. I am still sore 6 days out and know I need to recover and start over.
Dammit. I am admittedly a little depressed. I had a good training season and all indications pointed to a great race.
But I'll reset and figure it out. For now, I am about to get so swamped with work it doesn't matter what my running goals are.
But it still really sucks I was so off target.... :(
